The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission of McLean County was formed jointly by Bloomington, Normal and McLean County to celebrate the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth and highlight his connections with McLean County. They commissioned two locals, Robert C. Bray and Nancy Steele Brokaw, to write a play about Lincoln’s McLean County involvements and influences.  Lincoln’s In Town was presented at the BCPA in February 2009. The collection includes the play’s script, programs, and DVD video recordings.
